SUPREME COURT: In the case of AL ISLAM TOUR CORPORATIONS vs UNION OF INDIA, The Supreme Court rejected a petition filed by All India Tours Corporation seeking directions from the center for the consideration as Private Tour operator (PTs) for the Hajj 2022 and inclusion of the name in the lists of the Haj Group Organisers for Haj-2022.
A bench held by Justice Abdul Nazeer and Justice PS Narasimha observed that similar petitions have been dismissed earlier by the court and no relief can be granted at this point in time.
During the hearing, Justice Nazeer said that “Earlier petitions we have dismissed. Hajj program has already commenced. Read our orders from last time. How much time left for Hajj now? At least you should have come one month before”.
Later, he added – “We are not inclined to pass any orders for Hajj 2022, let them consider this next year. Nothing can be done at this stage. It should’ve been done much earlier during Ramzan”.
“List is ready, not declared. Please consider, it is my survival”, the Counsel appearing for petitioners said.
The petitioner, doing the work of organizing Haj, Umrah, Ziyatrat Tour business has submitted that the acceptance of its application form for the registration and allocation of Haj quota for Haj-2022 has been put on hold even after their online application and after fulfilling all the eligibility criteria as per the guidelines of Haj Committee of India.
